Prayer Time Teachable Moment

Paul’s prayers in the epistles are not on escaping or dealing with the massive problems the people in Ephesus and other churches experienced. In Eph 1.15-23, Paul prays for God to enlighten the hearts of his readers so that will know God better. (Other similar scripture possibilities to make this same point are Phil 1.9-11 where Paul prays for Christ to make his home in the readers’ hearts, empowering them with inner strength, and Phil 1.9-11 where Paul prays for the readers to grow in knowledge and understanding of what is really important so they can live holy lives and bear the fruit of righteous character.) We must have these perspectives if we are to face life in any circumstance. (concept from Timothy Keller's book: Prayer, pgs. 19-22)
